Red Deer Emergency Services personnel were called out to a fire at Patterson Crescent on the north side of Red Deer shortly after 3:30 p.m. on Monday.

Firefighters did a primary search, which is a quick search to see if there is anyone in the home, and then a more extensive secondary search, but found no one in the residence.

Platoon Chief Kelly Wilson said no one was injured in the fire.

Fifteen fire-medics, three trucks and an ambulance were called to the scene.

A little smoke could be seen wafting through the back door of the home and basement window. Fire-medics quickly got the fire under control.

Wilson said it is believe that the fire started in the basement. At press time it was still too early to know the cause of the fire or the amount of damage caused.

He said the fire inspectors would arrive later on Monday to start their investigation.
